ACTIVISTS GET TOGETHER! NETWORKING FOR A RESILIENT PLANET
After a week of meeting old and new friends, creating new alliances and downloading insights on how to change your life or save the planet, come join us for the last networking session at Liminal on an interactive workshop.
This will be a space where activists, organizations, and individuals can get to know other people and learn about different activist initiatives, learn about projects in your bioregion, connect with possible project allies and collaborators, get informed on other social and ecological situations akin to their own and get inspired by solutions found in other contexts for the same problems, find ways in which they can support each other's projects and process for healing of the Earth and organizing coordinated community action around topics of interest, support and strengthen each other's projects and visions.
